"Honored as a peacemaker and virtuoso, [Turkish born] OMAR FARUK TEKBILEK is one of the most sought-after musicians, whose work transcends political boundaries while maintaining traditional sensibilities in a way few artists can manage. Omar Faruk Tekbilek has established himself as one of the world's foremost exponents of Middle Eastern music. A multi-instrumentalist par excellence, he has collaborated with a number of leading musicians of international repute such as jazz trumpeter Don Cherry, keyboard player Karl Berger, ex-Cream rock drummer Ginger Baker, Ofra Haza, Simon Shaheen, Hossam Ramzy, Glen Velez, Bill Laswell, Mike Mainieri, Peter Erskine, Trilok Gurtu, Jai Uttal and Steve Shehan among others. He has contributed to numerous film and TV scores and to many recordings including world sacred music albums, and has been touring extensively throughout the Middle East, Europe, Australia, North and South America. Omar Faruk’s music is rooted in tradition, but has been influenced by contemporary sounds. He views his approach as “cosmic” and his commitment to music runs deep. The four corners of his creativity emanates mysticism, folklore, romance, and imagination. Like Omar Faruk himself, his music symbolizes diversity-in-unity.



In 'One', master Omar Faruk Tekbilek and a super group of Middle Eastern musicians join together for a complex spiritual journey, based on the sacred chants of the three religious traditions of the Middle East. A tapestry of soulful chanting, ambient sounds of the desert and countless musical layers reveal how similar the different cultures of the Middle East are. In 'ONE', the music is pointing to the alternative path of peace, co-existence and the nature of being."
